21 Jun: Seniors ride to Hemingford Abbotts

Peter writes: George and Clive met Anna and Bridget at Madingley Road Park and Ride site. They set out to ride directly to the Rowell estate for coffee.

Coffee was served in the garden and the party were surprised when Harley (a young stallion cob) appeared on the other side of a barbed wire fence.

After coffee we started out for Hemingford Abbotts via the old St Neots Road to Knapwell and Elsworth cross roads to Conington.

In Conington we went left into School Lane for a tour round Conington village. At the White Swan we turned left and left at the Tee road to go to Fenstanton via the underpass under the A14

From Fenstanton we took the Low Road to Hemingford Grey and Hemingford Abbotts. We had lunch at The Axe and Compasses, where we were joined by Vic, Adrian and George Stevenson (from Easton-on-the-Hill, Lincs.)

After lunch the main party returned to Cambridge via Fenstanton, Longstanton and Oakington whilst I retraced my route home.
